I wasn’t too much of a fan of going to uni as I prefer to do something where I can do stuff, as I find it easier to learn stuff by actually getting in proper situations and activities, and I didn’t fancy carrying on more school but get in to actual software development work.
So far it has been really good, everyone at work is really nice and easy to work with. Due to this any issues I face they are more than happy to help and lead me in the right direction. So far I have worked on many projects some being by myself and some being with a group of people. These I have found very useful as it helps me understand the business a bit better by working on real life projects.
It has helped me learn more about software development and coding languages which I haven’t ever touched before. This has meant I have learnt more than I initially thought. It has allowed me to gain more experience in this line of work so I know what is expected of me.
I feel the advantages of apprenticeships compared to other training or education is that you are working in the job role you want while also learning at the same time, all the time…
…and not forgetting the fact you get paid for it also.
But on a serious note, apprenticeships offer a lot more as you learn whilst working so you get the best of both worlds.
